Elvenwork Forum

This forum has been a way to provide a public exchange of questions and answers for polymer clay sculptors. But, as I said in my final post, there comes a time when all things must end. That doesn't mean the forum used as an archive has nothing to offer. Indeed it is still loaded with questions and answers that remain relevant and which are searchable! For that reason, I'm keeping it available, though no new posts can be added. If after searching the forum your question isn't addressed, Join me on to ask it. As always, you'll find me there as Katherine Dewey. Hope to see you there. --  Katherine

Re: Spheres

I've covered large wooden eggs, balls and beads coated with a 1 to 1 mix of liquid Sculpey and white glue (I like Jewel-It)to help the clay adhere. I let the glue mix dry at least one hour before applying the clay. I've used foil; square sheets make round forms and stacking square sheets make larger round forms. I've used a 1 to 1 mix of epoxie clay and paper clay, letting the epoxy cure before coating with the above mentioned glue mix first. For very large forms I've used epoxy clay and made the interior forms hollow. I've also cover styrofoam with foil or epoxy or epoxy/paper clay.
Hope this helps,
